{November 17, 2013}   Pawns

jameswaiting
how did you do it?
it isn’t often i let anyone in
so tell me, how did you do it,
and why?
sometimes i want to pull into my shell,
set everything to mute
and scramble away
hiding,
safe,
alone, as it probably should be,
better for everyone,
then you tickle my mind
remind me i’m still breathing
commanding a smile out of me,
because you own the right, just by being,
even though we are pawns, at least for now,
checkmate is just a few moves away,
until then we shall live our black and white television world,
knowing an explosion of color waits for us
chess
